Sooo, I had some floss from stuffies I'd been making, and some plain fabric and a serious desire to stab Edward Cullen in the face  Cool I drew him freeform from a picture off the internet, and it was pretty simple, all but for the eyes, which I couldn't figure out. His hair is my favorite. I used backstiches as well as sort of a backwards backstitch...I'm not sure what that's called. Pardon my ameteurness, I've never embarked into the scary world of needlework before =p



Let me know what you think!

Awesome! I knew exactly who it was just from the Thumbnail! He looks a little creepy with empty eye sockets though!

If you're willing to spend a dollar or so, you could maybe use metallic floss in a silvery color for the eyes.

This is brilliant and I knew who it was straight away (it's Edward's hair!). I can't believe it's your first attempt  Smiley I kind of like the empty eye-ness but as sweet_communist suggested metallic floss in a gold/ bronze could work.

Are you going to try Jacob next?  Tongue

I had a thought last night about your project as I was falling asleep. Maybe you could crayon tint his eyes!
